In speaking of the matter in The Herald, Mr. Amasa Aldrich, one of the defeated candidates says, "it was one of the most closely contested elect ions ever held in that city. The fact of the fusion between the straight oat republicans and the liberals of Mount Pleasant has been known ever uince the liberals found ont that they could not possibly carry the election with a straight ticket themselves. "The whole election machinery was manipulated by the liberals and republicans. repub-licans. Considerable challenging was done, but iuvariably those who were voting the liberal-republican ticket were allowed to ote. Old residents of the city were not allowed to YOte, although al-though they had lived there for years. When they came to the polls they found thst their names had been stricken from the list, and they were not allowed to vote. Others wero challenged and challenge sustained." , In adetter to the editor Dr. Wood-ering Wood-ering says "the democrats are not in it this time. The liberal-republicans have r.n average majority of 35. I can not explain it in any other way than to say they got more votes than we did. We aro not discouraged, and will hold meetings as usual. We will be ready to give them another round In Novem-b Novem-b er." Under the old law, Mount Pleasant was entitled to seven councllmen, the number voted for at this election, but the number of votes polled makes her rank as a city of the third class and to have only five. In view of this decision by the commission, the secretary will issue certificates of election to those five receiving the highest number of votes a solid republican council.
